This is the ‘White-Horse Courier’ who delivers people’s food orders around town like a cowboy on horseback.
The cowboy courier, who works for Delivery Club, a Russian food delivery service, was snapped riding his white horse in the city of Saratov in the south-western Russian region of Saratov Oblast.
The Delivery Club courier, named as Alexey Savelyev, told local media that he used to be a riding instructor and the horse is his own.

He said that the photos of him making deliveries on horseback where taken on his second day on the job.
Meanwhile, a Delivery Club spokesperson said that the company has nothing against couriers using a horse to move around the city, but noted that it is not “the most convenient and compact” form of transport.
They promised to give the new deliveryman an electric scooter because “parking in urban locations will definitely be easier”.
Meanwhile, Savelyev said: “The scooter is a good idea, but I would like to alternate. I want to make deliveries on horseback on day and ride the scooter the next.
“Around the city, I have been nicknamed the ‘White-Horse Courier’.”
Netizen ‘Leny Dennica’ commented: “This is the most beautiful thing in the world, a courier on a horse! Yes, I would definitely order from them if my delivery came on a horse.”
‘Denis Gutnik’ said: “I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more…”
